    Here are some reversible table runners I made.

    This one is for my BIL and his wife.

    The Mom saw it and wanted one as well, but longer.

    They were very quick and easy. Probably took me 2 hours per side and 1 hour to sew each side together.

    Do you straighten the sides and bind them or leave the strips as they are?

    Here is the pattern

    http://www.quiltbus.com/tabletopper.htm

    sewaholic, I just left the strips as they were, was lucky in that the sewing of each side matched up. However, if they hadn't then I would have cut the edges into straight edge and sewn as the pattern indicates.

    Did not bind it. I think the term is "birthing". I placed each front to front, sewed the edges, leaving a section unsewn, turned inside out and then sewed around the very edge so that they wouldn't slip. Then I also just made a little tacking stitch every so often down the middle so it wouldn't slip through there either.

    Thanks racnquilter for the link. Hope you didn't think I was being rude, about the binding thing. They are very pretty, and very even. :D

    Racnquilter:
    I love your reversible tablerunners. I want to make some! NOW! Did you get the pattern on line? It looks easy enough but without the dimensions I'd probably have a problem . Opps, read further down...you gave us the site for the pattern. THANK YO&U!
